Human Trafficking and its Immigration Implications for Survivors

Delivered by Jennifer Blair, a practicing barrister at No5 Chambers specializing in women’s rights and cases involving vulnerable clients, and Tara Topteagarden, Trafficked Children’s Adviser at the Refugee Council, this seminar will cover:

  • Defining victims of human trafficking and thresholds for positive identifications;
  • The National Referral Mechanism;
  • Key immigration implications of being identified as a victim of trafficking, including kinds of application and raising trafficking in appeals and judicial review;
  • Child and adult case studies;
  • Working with survivors in light of specific vulnerabilities, including mental health and detention;
  • The practicalities of working in this area, including funding for legal aid.

This training is aimed at legal advisers, voluntary sector workers and social workers and is for those with a moderate level of experience working with forced migrants and trafficking survivors. However, it will begin with the definitions of trafficking and so is also suitable for those with a basic knowledge of the subject material.

 Tickets cost £65 full price, with a reduced price of £35 for smaller organisations.
